  •  1 onions, diced
  •  1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup parsley, chopped
  •  2 cups all-purpose flour
  •  1/8 teaspoon salt
  •  1 egg, beaten
  •  1/2 cup cold water, or as needed
  •  Oil


To Make Meat Mixture: Heat 4 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook onions, beef and add salt and pepper. Cook for 15-20 minutes and break down meat with fork. 5 minutes before removing from heat add cilantro and parsley and mix the ingredients. After removing from heat put in a container and put it in the refrigerator because the meat needs to be cold before adding to the dough.

To Make Dough: In a medium bowl, combine flour, salt and egg and mix well. Stir in water, a little bit at a time, until dough is stiff. Knead dough for 2 to 4 minutes on a lightly floured surface. Roll out dough to 1/8 inch thickness with a rolling pin. With a glass or cookie cutter, cut out rounds about 3 inches in diameter.

Add a teaspoon of meat to each round dough and put one side on other and press down on edges to seal and lightly roll in hands.

In a skillet add enough oil to fry.

Fry the peroshkis make sure to turn it often so the sides dont burn. When dough is cooked remove from heat and serve.


My favorite snack, I remeber growing up every friday we would have dinner as a family with my grandparents and my grandmother would bring peroshkis out on a beautiful silver tray and once me and my cousins put our hands on it, it would be gone in seconds. It brings back some speciel memories!
